Orlando Aguilar is a star producer from our La Palma, El Salvador sourcing program.

La Palma is a small village set amongst the tall mountains of Chalatenango, that create a barrier between three countries: Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. Orlando Aguilar grows Bourbon and Pacas varietal coffees and processes primarily in the "Honey" style process. This method creates a layer of sugars over the bean, which add incredible character and complexity to his delicious coffees.
